McNair: QB’s affair ended in tragedy
By Joe Edwards and Travis Loller
NASHVILLE, Tenn. ó The star quarterback and the waitress met six months ago, at a restaurant where she worked and his family often ate. He was married and 16 years older, but she seemed happy and eager to build a life with him.
Steve McNair was spending time again in Nashville. Sahel Kazemi was 20 years old and swept up: He gave her an Escalade for her birthday and took her on trips to Las Vegas and Key West.
“She just had it made, you know, this guy taking care of everything,” her nephew, Farzin Abdi, said Monday.
Kazemi had introduced her family to McNair, her nephew said. Abdi quoted her as saying McNair was divorcing his wife.
“I think she had already put her stuff up for sale on Craigslist,” Abdi said.
